Types of Residential Roofs That Hold Up in Colorado
If you are looking for a roof replacement, you may be wondering what the best options are for a quality roof that will stand up to the weather conditions here in Colorado. We offer several quality options to our customers.
For Colorado’s extreme weather, metal roofs make an excellent choice because of their durability. They are fairly lightweight and can handle heavy snow and winds up to 140 mph.
They are economical and can last between 40 and 70 years with only minimal maintenance. Metal roofs are fireproof, which is an excellent choice in areas more prone to fires in Colorado.
They have a sharp and sleek look to them. They’re available in several colors and different styles, making it easy to choose one that best fits the exterior of your home.
We offer a variety of types of shingles. Asphalt shingles are durable and come at a reasonable price. They’re quick and easy to install and when installed correctly and properly maintained they can last for about 25-30 years.
Asphalt shingles can cover many different angles, shapes and forms. They work with almost any type of roof; specially modified asphalt shingles are available to resist the impact of hailstorms on your roof.
A concrete tile is an excellent option for homeowners in Colorado looking for a durable, long-lasting option for their roofs. Concrete tiles are very heavy, though, so your home must be able to handle the weight. They cost a little more but can last 100 years.
Lightweight clay tile roofing is beautiful and will help make your home more energy-efficient while standing up to the harsh winters. They come in natural colors and go well with any exterior color of your home. They can sustain high winds and are fireproof.
Stone-Coated Metal Roofs
One of the best types of roofing for homes in Colorado is the stone-coated metal roof. They are not only beautiful, but last for decades. They can withstand winds of 120 mph. They are energy-efficient and reflect heat to help keep your home cooler.
Stone-Coated metal are structural grade steel. These roofs can withstand heavy snow yet have enough elasticity that a person can still walk on them. The panels are dipped in aluminum-zinc alloy to coat them to help prevent any corrosion.
They are also dipped in an acrylic coating that works as a primer. They are coated in resin paint to help protect them from water damage and damage from UV rays—next, a thin layer of stone granules and a glaze to hold the stones in place.
All of these types of roofing are wonderful options for those in Colorado.
